Functions of English Man

  • Eric McCready

Abstract

This paper discusses the semantics of the English particle man. It is shown that this particle does different things when used sentence-initially and sentence-finally. The sentence-initial use is further shown to separate into two distinct intonational types with different semantic content. A formal semantics is proposed for these types.
